    The food is very nice in this restaurant and the service very attentive but not annoying as often happens in London - they let you be while sitting at your table and they come to you immediately if you need anything. We had the soup of the day and a knödel special, followed by the best wiener schnitzel we’ve ever had in London (it’s huge and crispy) and Kalbsgeschnetzeltes, which was also very good, especially the spätzle on the side. We’ll definitely come back to try something different next time!

    Nice atmosphere. Staff were friendly. The Schnitzel tasted amazing. Fantastic cakes. Reminded me of food back home. Will definitely visit again.

    A lovely, homely restaurant with a good menu selection. I had the kasespatzle which was delicious, and very filling - but luckily you can ask for the leftovers to be boxed up for later! They also serve breakfast until 4pm every day, so it's a good place for a lazy brunch. The staff were lovely and helpful.

    I love Kipferl. I come here all the time as a local. The sausages could have been hotter and more crispy, but that would be my only piece of feedback.

    Very nice food. My partner and I cancelled our trip to the Austrian Alps due to the pandemic, and instead visited Kipferl. Reminded me of home. I am Austrian, obviously.

    Authentic Austrian food in bustling and friendly atmosphere. I had Kasespatzle, home made cheesy noodles. Really good beer and wines too.

    The restaurant was lovely and quaint in atmosphere. Comfortable but small. The food was amazing and also comforting. Most of our group of 14 had 3 courses. No complaints. The staff were also amazing and helpful and left nothing to be desired.

    Excellent authentic with great value food and fantastic service. The wine list it’s all Austrian with some nice choices and the deserts are great and original too. Proper Austrian throughout. Highly recommended.

    A truly authentic Austrian offering traditional dishes at reasonable prices. We both opted for Wiener Schnitzel which was excellent. The portions are generous. The wine list concentrates on Austrian products with some original and rare vintages. The service is friendly and efficient.

    I am German and just love going back to this place, always accompanied by friends and colleagues who enjoy as much as me the variety of food and the taste. The selection grew over the course of the years and the cakes are just unbeatable!

    The food was delicious, hearty Austrian fare - just what we'd expected. There are a couple of things on the menu that you rarely see in London (like freshly grated horseradish served alongside sausages), and this was a real treat. Some items are expensive for what they are; the hot chocolate for example was made with powder and water, and was not great. Despite the good food and generally okay prices, my lasting impression was that the waiting staff are not very friendly and at points seemed to be laughing amongst themselves about some of the customers in the restaurant. Whilst this may be a genuinely Austrian experience (having lived in Austria, I have experienced my fair share of "Wiener Schmäh"), it did impact on our enjoyment of the evening, and I'd hesitate before deciding to return (although the Käsespätzle were delicious).
